Making Big Strides: a full year’s commercial production

12 months ago, we started our first commercial production of copper. A year on, through the hard work and dedication of our team and on-going support of our partners and stakeholders, we have continually exceeded our production targets and are on pace to be the world’s third-largest copper mining complex by the end of 2024.

Copper is known as the king of “green metals”. Due to the global trend towards decarbonization, demand for copper will most likely increase in line with the shift towards clean energy and transportation technologies.

The move from a high carbon economy to a low carbon economy is effectively a shift to a “copper economy” because of the important role that this metal plays in clean energy technologies.

The Democratic Republic of Congo is uniquely positioned along the Central African Copperbelt, where substantial undeveloped gold, cobalt and high-grade copper deposits exist. Boasting some of the highest-grade copper reserves globally, the country will play a central role in the energy transition as a critical supplier of this “green metal”.
